Losartan. I know 4 other people on it. No side effects.

If you feel like you need it go talk to a Psychologist, they can explain out all the side effects or if you need it. Or maybe you need it and therapy or maybe just need some therapy. But I glad you ate considering you mental health!

There are a lot of smart people on this app. A very select few few *might* have pharmacological expertise. Psychoactive medications don’t react the same way for all and certain medications treat certain conditions/symptoms. See a doctor/psychologist if you’re experiencing issues and talk through how any medicines might affect you (side effects, impact of other medicines you take, etc.) Studies show anxiety is best treated by a combination of therapy and medicine.

Yes. My experience is if it helps you to feel normal, then they are helping you. If they make you feel drowsy or lethargic then you don’t really “need” them or there could be a better solution for you besides anti-anxiety medication
